Course Materials

It is possible to follow the course by just attending the lectures and solving exercises. However your results will be much more firm if you supplement yourself with a text book. We shall mostly refer to:

Andrew W. Appel. Modern Compiler Implementation in C. Cambridge University Press (1999, paperback 2004).

Slides, notes, and exercise tasks are available from the episode descriptions, reachable via the schedule.

Teaching Language

All course materials are in English and the lectures will be given in English.

Programming Language

We will be mostly concerned with compiling computation intensive pointerless C programs with arrays. The algorithms will be presented in pseudocode (exercises may occasionally require some C programming skills).
